Pissed Off Sea Lion Pulls Little Girl Into the Water

  • Sea Lion Canada

The terrifying moment a sea lion jumped out of the water, grabbed a girl and pulled her into the water was caught on camera. But for some reason, she sat on the wall near the water, after which the sea creature pounced at her once again, grabbed her by the dress and pulled her into the water.

Andrew Tites, director of the University of British Columbia's Marine Mammal Research Unit, told CBC News the tourists should not have been so cavalier around the animal.

In an interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Kiesman said that there are signs all over the dock telling people not to feed the sea lions as well as warnings that disturbing the mammals could lead to a $100,000 fine.

Attacks by sea lions on humans are rare, Lt. John Sandmeyer told a local television station in San Diego, where a sea lion dragged a 62-year-old man off his boat and about 20 feet underwater. However, the sea lion which has now received celebrity status is receiving more visitors. The girl can be seen in the video being rescued by a man who dives in after her, and although shaken, she appears to walk away relatively unscathed.

"It likely became frustrated because the family was feeding it, and the feeding stopped", she said.

Bob Beziuk, a general manager of the harbor, told PEOPLE that sea lions will engage with visitors if they are fed - but they're still unsafe wild animals.

"When we see performing animals, like at the circus, we get false information about whether animals like to be around people".

Canada's Marine Mammal Regulations says that "no person shall disturb a marine mammal except when fishing for marine mammals". "This was a male California sea lion".

"It's not Sea World, it's a place where you buy fish", Baziuk said, according to CNN.

A girl is next shown trying to get close to the animal to feed it.
